Check out the family’s picture on LinkedIn accepting this award. See their self important smirks. Read the lickspittle’s pride in working for such and amazing family. Then remember the lady at RG 2 that had cancer – twice - and how they couldn’t wait to lay her off. So much for pre existing conditions Mr. Scrooge! The amazing family will reward you for your decisive management.

Astonishing, given what has transpired over the past several years... This award certainly had nothing to do with the appalling way in which so many employees have been treated.

It was a good company until the past 5-6 years than it became unscrupulous. Leadership changes took the company to hell.

Maybe they should've asked about the VP let go from the warehouse last year. Now that was a tragedy. Should've totally disqualified them.

Amazing! How much money they threw away on bad decisions? Ivory Tower? ADC? Kiva bots?

How badly they treated dedicated long term employees to put an extra buck in their pockets?

Other rich family owned businesses praising a rich family owned business.

Could be renamed the Greedy Weasel Award. Our Motto, We're Rich and You're the Help!

What an honor. This great award recognizes great accomplishment in...

I can't find anything about it. Here is a link that says they've won the Century Award. No definition of what that award is, means or who else was nominated. https://www.luc.edu/quinlan/stories/archive/illinois-family-business-of-the-year-award-winners-2018.shtml

How many marketing dollars and hours were put into this award? I'm guessing the judges don't read Glassdoor or The Layoff.

Again, what an accomplishment! One is tempted to compare the family thing to the Addams family. However it feels more the the Cosby Show family. I guess it looks nice from the outside, but it's awfully creepy inside (like the Addams Family after all.
